I think that we will see a closer race between PS5 and XSX (expecially if we see different Xbox models).

Definitely in the US it will be a much closer race with Microsoft getting off their butt. Xbox One had a lot of issues for most of the generation.

Xbox is mainly relevant in America. Despite the PS4 killing the Xbox One in total lifetime sales, it's still common to see the "PS4 or Xbox" discussion in America since the sales are so close and comparable in that region. However, I assume outside the U.S the Xbox is barely talked about as Xbox just got killed in sales in the other regions like Europe and obviously Japan. Microsoft needs to make sure they market and and capture more of the European video game market with the Xbox SX if they want to maximize their sales and compete with the PS5 in sales. I see Japan as a lost cause the, especially by how niche the home console market is over there now.
